Tuesday's with Adhering Words #7 (a day late)

I have been having HUGE problems with my internet, and 9 times out of 10 when I try to log on I get nothing. I have much to post about, and no way of doing it. I am actually using my Sprint wireless in order to post...can you say expensive.

So this is my latest project, and I am loving it. I have created walls, that Shawn built, for craft shows. I saw a booth that looked like a room at a craft show last year, and I have wanted walls ever since. It was Mike's idea to go with the pegboard to hang things on, at first I wanted nothing to do with the idea. However, I came around and I am so glad that I did.

This is the wall that Jade's fiance Shawn built for me!! I used vinyl to make a simple damask pattern, and then I painted the pegboard taupe.

This is what it looks like after removing the vinyl, it left the dark brown of the pegboard for the damask pattern. I am loving it so much.

This is what the walls look like with display on them. For a craft show they will be straight and unangled, and there will be 9 panels, instead of 3, forming a "U".

Jade's office building has vendors come in and set up once in a while, and she signed me up for two different days, in two different buildings. It has been fun, and both days Jade has spent her lunch hour with me. I love listening to her sell me, she makes me sound amazing.

None of this would be possible without a few important people in my life.
My dad, who had the faith in me to put the money up to buy the plotter and laptop.
Shawn, who does a beautiful job with anything involving wood and Mike, my darling husband who never complains about how much this is costing him, he says we will get it back someday. Then there is Jade, who talks about this to anyone who will listen, and helps me out of my comfort zone. And last but not least, my mom, she is always so willing to watch Jordan when I need her to, and I come home to a clean house!
